Had 6/28/13 in a bomber after aging for around 1.5 years. Pitch black. No light when held up to a light. Smooth feel in the mouth. Name is no joke. It is super sour, and a good taste if you are into that kind of thing. Personally, I'm not, but it was still good for a sour. Honestly, my expectations weren't too high since I'm not a huge fan of the style. My biggest complaint is that it's so sour, it really kills all the other flavors I know are in there. Price was pretty steep from what I remember. I would drink it again, but only one glass and not if I paid for it. I would definitely suggest if you're into the wild ales or lambics.
